Film showing – Playing for change, 2nd July, 7pm the Fear Hall

Playing for change

‘Playing for Change’ is a music project, created by the American producer and sound engineer Mark Johnson, which seeks to bring together musicians from around the world to promote harmony and change for the better.

This amazing film synchronises leading world musicians playing a selection of songs simultaneously all over the planet. If you haven’t seen it you probably need to. If you have, here’s a chance to see it BIG with great sound.

‘Playing For Change’ also created a separate non-profit organization called the Playing For Change Foundation which builds music schools for children around the world.

Doors open at 7pm and until 7.30pm Transition Keynsham will be serving refreshments for you to enjoy whilst watching the film.

The screening is free but a suggested donation of £3 would be wonderful to help cover the hall costs.  Any profits will be donated to the playing for change foundation.

You can watch a trailer here and find out more about the foundation here

December Film Showing

2012: Time for Change 

(85 mins)

Presents an optimistic alternative to apocalyptic doom and gloom. Directed by Emmy Award nominee João Amorim, the film follows journalist Daniel Pinchbeckon a quest for a new paradigm that integrates the wisdom of tribal cultures with the scientific method. As conscious agents of evolution, we can redesign post-industrial society on ecological principles to make a world that works for all. Rather than breakdown and barbarism, 2012 heralds the birth of a regenerative planetary culture where collaboration replaces competition, where exploration of psyche and spirit becomes the new cutting edge, replacing the sterile materialism that has pushed our world to the brink.

November Film Showing – World Water Wars

Blue Gold ~ World Water Wars

For centuries, wars have been fought over precious commodities from all over the world—though, so far, water hasn’t been one of them. But according to Blue Gold: World Water Wars, that’s all about to change as political, economic, and social movements make water a limited resource in more and more international regions. The film takes viewers through the causes of the water crisis—mining, pollution, wetland destruction—and blocks out the potential effects of a water shortage. For an informative look at all parts of the problem, make sure it’s on your list of must-sees.
